I guess, it being Sunday and all, that it's my day to post on Religion Issues...
So I get a new post on my "Spitting on Nancy Pelosi" post from way back in August of 2009:
Anonymous said...Yeah, anonymous asshole, it sure might sound like it to you, but it isn't. Not really.Here's my response to that post:
I read the constitution, and it ends with this statement: "Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven..."
Lord? Didn't you say there was not a single mention of God? Sounds like a mention to me.
You gotta be fuckin' KIDDING me...My favorite prayer is this: Jesus, save me from your followers...
That's the way EVERY SINGLE official document was dated back in the day.
That was the accepted method of dating stuff. See, for example, this as well as this and this.
That does not indicate a belief in god and I'm surprised that you people can even bring that up as "proof" that the FFs believed in god.
Give me a fucking break, already.
Followers who are too fucking stupid to even know what "A.D." means when it comes to dating stuff.
A.D., morons, is a shorthand acronym for the Latin "Anno Domine", which translates into "The Year of Our Lord"... It was an accepted and handy way of dating stuff for centuries, and its use no more indicates a belief in the Magical Guy in the Sky than does something like the expletive "god damn it".
You people really think that when someone swears a hearty and explosively emotional "god damn it!" when something goes wrong they are actually calling on the Xian god to literally damn something?
Actually, now that I think about it, when Baby Doc Bush called the US Constitution "just a goddamn piece of paper", he was serious about that curse... After all, he did his best to figuratively, if not literally, shred it. To damn it, as it were.
And don't let's forget, he was a guy who talked to god every day. Who wouldn't listen to advice from his own father about invading Iraq because he was answering to a "higher father".
And more chilling, he actually thought god was answering him... And told him to invade Iraq!
